    I got stuck today...first time. We went out to the mudhole in my friends 2WD s-10 Blazer with bald dtreet tires and started messing around, nothing serious, and got it stuck pretty bad. We got it out by stacking rocks. Then a few Z71s showed up, and we went back to get my truck. When we got back there was a white Jeep there and the Z71s were still there. I flew through some mudhloes with no problem, but then I sank the drivers side up to the bottom of the door and couldn't get out. the Z71s knew they couldn't get me out, but the Jeep guy thought he could. He hooked it up and couldn't budge me. My friend decided to try his Blazer, and after about a minute, he had me out. The 4x4 Jeep with 31" Mud terrains couldn't believe a 2WD S10 with bald street tires beat him. He left really soon after that. Just more proof that Jeeps SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'm not gonna say that any brand sucks, but if Jeeps are so good, why is it that the more built a Jeep is, the more Chevy parts it has on it? All the Jeep guys want the 350 SBC, Chevy tranny/T-case and of course, Chevy full-size axles. Why not just start out from the beginning with the ultimate Jeep: a Chevy!

    Try fitting a Blazer or pickup down some of the trails out there... have heard and seen guys losing body parts and coming back w/ nearly every panel bashed. I still hate jeeps... hate that cheap crap more then a ford. No love here... would rather have an Aztek... then you at least have a built in cooler for your beer[​IMG].

    Hahaha, Diahatsu actually had a pretty sweet little 4x4 for about 10 years from the middle 80's to the middle 90's. Never brought them here, of course[​IMG]. Forgot the name, but I've seen some pictures of them in Austraila and New Zealand, and they look pretty cool and good offroad.

    Come on guys. There's nothing wrong with liking other brands. I like my Chevy, my Ford, my Jeep and my Mercury all about equally. They all have good and bad points, but none of them suck.

    I like a lot of different trucks, but I have never really like Jeeps much. The only person I knew who had one rolled it in the mud, and he was a really good off roader too. I do like other trucks, I know several people with awesome Broncos and Dodge Rams, I just prefer Chevy. My friends S10 really amazed me pulling me out when the Jeep couldn't...
